Read tripadvisor.com/Travel-g293915-c3667/Thailan…

Amethysts are not mined in Thailand or even the neighboring countries, so why do you think you could get them in wholesale bulk amounts and prices from Thailand?

Chatuchak weekend market and the nearby JJ Mall would be the first suspects for knickknacks. If you are looking for stuff for your own home and willing to pay normal retail prices, IKEA www.ikea.co.th might be interesting, since their stuff tends to be packed for 'takeaway'. They have a free shuttle bus from the Udomsuk BTS station exit 5.

Just a thought but rather than be searching all over the place in Bangkok for your amethyst, why not do an internet search. I've seen a lot of this stuff in Australia, including the amethyst rocks, so it is about.

Abhilasha79... I think you need to take Britmaveric's suggestion with a grain of salt! Tuk tuk drivers in Bangkok are notorious for trying to take unsuspecting tourists to "gem factories" where the goods are not always what they seem.... In other words, that's not the place you want to look for your ameythests. It's a scam....

Yes Abhilasha, Britmaveric was pulling your leg. Good thing that Skeezix filled you in.

The joke is that tuk tuk drivers will always give all sorts of information about just about everything as long as there is a considerable reward in it for them.
